It was a disappointing, ahem, blow to learn that San Francisco, the home of the cock-shaped cookie, is no longer the gayest city in America. In fact, we didn't even make the top 10. At No. 11, San Francisco fell behind Orlando, Santa Fe, and Las Vegas.

Naturally, The Daily Show had to find out why the city that believes it invented gay is no longer on top, so to speak. Jason Jones made a visit to San Francisco and compared it to the No. 1 named city -- Minneapolis.

Here is a clip from Monday night's show, where Jones calls our fair city the "colonial Williamsburg of gay."

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
